Applying for membership
Membership is available to governments, corporations and organisations who can demonstrate a legitimate interest in the advancement of CCS, where they:
- have demonstrated that they will make a material contribution to the fulfilment of the objectives of the Institute, or are likely to make such a contribution; and
- carry on a business or activity where the advancement of CCS is not merely incidental to its core business or activities.
There is no application fee to join the Institute. However, there is a small contingent liability fee associated with Membership. The Global CCS Institute is a Company limited by guarantee under the Australian Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Corporations Act). Under the Act, applicants commit to paying AUD$10 in the event that the Institute is wound up. This fee can be met through:
- the Member guaranteeing that they will pay AUD$10 if the Institute is wound up and has insufficient funds; or
- the Member agreeing to pay the amount of AUD$10 when they have been approved for Membership, on the basis it be held in trust by the Institute until such time as the Institute is wound up.
As per the Institute’s Constitution, applications for Membership are assessed by the Institute’s International Board of Directors.
The processing time for applications will depend on the date applications are received, and the date of the next Board meeting.
